Why Is Today's Big Qatar Story Not Getting More Attention?

The Washington Post reported that USA intelligence officials learned last week of newly analysed information that showed that senior UAE government officials discussed the planned hacking on May 23, the day before it occurred.

On Monday, Qatar pointed to the Washington Post's report accusing UAE as conclusive, saying in a statement that the story, "which revealed the involvement of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and senior Emirati officials in the hacking of Qatar News Agency, unequivocally proves that this hacking crime took place". On June 15, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and other allies cut diplomatic and trade links in a bid to isolate Qatar and accused the country of supporting extremism. The State Department has sought to manage the sticky situation by not explicitly taking sides, given that the U.S. really has an interest in maintaining strong ties with every one of the countries involved - including Qatar, which hosts over 10,000 USA military personnel and a base that's crucial to the US-led war against ISIS.

"The UAE had no role whatsoever in the alleged hacking described in the article", Ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba's statement said.

Sheikh al-Thani was reported to have praised Hamas and called Iran an "Islamic power" on May 24.

The next day President Trump, on a trip to Saudi Arabia, held a counter-terrorism meeting with Gulf Arab nation leaders, and shortly after that meeting the hacking operation was allegedly put into action.

Qatar rejected the ultimatum by calling it an "unprovoked attack on Qatar's sovereignty" and has denied supporting extremists.

"We need to be certain that Qatar, a state with $300 billion in reserves, is no longer an official or unofficial sponsor of jihadist and terrorist causes", he said, giving no further detail on the proposed monitoring.
